Virtual Event: EU Digital Strategy – A Holistic Vision For A Digital Europe?

June 16, 2021

Speaker: Thomas Boué, Director General, EMEA Policy, BSA | The Software Alliance

The EU digital strategy sketches an ambitious approach to sculpt Europe's digital future – covering areas and issues as diverse as the digital economy and value extraction from industrial data, to the impact of digital transformation on the environment, to the shaping of open and democratic societies. Yet the optimal content and implementation of digital policy in Europe – of any form – is always subject to fierce contestation. A policy as ambitious as the EU Digital Strategy is no exception. This panel will explore the EU Digital Strategy and consider the following questions:

  • What are the key goals of the strategy, how will they be implemented, and how will this impact existing EU law and policy?
  • To what degree does the strategy effectively balance the competing interests implied in digitization and data processing?
  • What factors will influence the successful implementation of the strategy?
  • What impacts should/will the strategy have beyond Europe's borders?
